ARCHITECTURE & LANDSCAPE DESIGN

ABOUT ASCAPE DESIGN LTD

The principal of Ascape Design Ltd is John Wierenga, a long time Island Bay resident who has been operating successfully as a sole practice architect/landscape architect in the Greater Wellington area for over thirty years.

He offers a wide range of experience in many aspects of architectural and landscape design, documentation and contract administration.

In addition to his formal qualifications as a Registered Architect, John also gained a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon, USA in 1980. His training and experience as a both architect and landscape architect provides a notable point of difference - a strong architectural design background is complemented by a good understanding of natural systems and plant materials, both native and exotic. The relationship between buildings and the natural environment, the close interface of architecture and landscape, and sustainable design continues to be of particular interest.

In recent years John has worked in collaboration with other architectural firms on site works and landscape design for a number of multi unit residential, institutional and educational landscape design projects in addition to completing a wide range of smaller residential landscape design projects.
